Thailand to hold elections in November 2017: junta chief — Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha says the country will hold a general election in November 2017. The announcement comes after Thai voters approved a junta-backed constitution in a referendum over the weekend.
Early general elections were held on 2 February 2014 after Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra asked King Bhumibol Adulyadej to dissolve parliament more than a year early due to a political crisis. The leaders of the umbrella anti-government movement objected to the polls, instead demanding that there be "reform before elections" and the Yingluck government be replaced with a royally-appointed "reform council".The elections were thus boycotted by the main opposition party, the Democrat Party, and disruption by protesters meant that voting in some constituencies had to be delayed until a later date, while absentee voters in urban areas were unable to vote.
